Inscoe, Beilin Jia, Connie Kim, Ruth Walsh, Sora Yoon, Suk Jung Kim, Cherie M. Kuzmiak, Donglin Zeng, Jianping Lu, Otto ZhouRationale and ObjectivesA linear array of carbon nanotube-enabled x-ray sources allows for stationary digital breast tomosynthesis (sDBT), during which projection views are collected without the need to move the x-ray tube. This work presents our initial clinical experience with a first-generation sDBT device.Materials and MethodsFollowing informed consent, women with a &ldquo...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewBreast density, or the amount of fibroglandular tissue in the breast, has become a recognized and independent marker for breast cancer risk. Public awareness of breast density as a possible risk factor for breast cancer has resulted in legislation for risk stratification purposes in many US states. This review will provide a comprehensive overview of the currently available imaging modalities for qualitative and quantitative breast density assessment and the current evidence on breast density and breast cancer risk assessment.Recent FindingsTo date, breast density assessment is mainly performed wit...

The benefits of digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) in breast cancer screening have been analyzed [1], but only a few studies have investigated the impact of DBT in the diagnostic setting [2]. Diagnostic mammography is performed to further evaluate findings seen on screening mammography in women recently treated for breast cancer and in patients with clinical concerns, such as a palpable breast lump or suspicious nipple discharge.

(CNN) — UK scientists have developed an online calculator that could enable doctors to more accurately predict a patient’s chance of developing breast cancer. If rolled out, the new tool could change the way in which the condition is treated. Among other things, details of family history, genetics, weight, alcohol consumption, age at menopause and use of hormone replacement therapy will all be considered by doctors when assessing a woman’s risk of developing breast cancer — the most common form of cancer in the UK. Each of these factors has “a small impact on the likelihood of developing the d...
